Royal Academy of Engineering/Renishaw Chair in Precision Metrology
Director, the UK National EPSRC Future Metrology Hub
University of Huddersfield
Professor Dame Jane Jiang holds a UK Royal Academy of Engineering/Renishaw Chair in Precision Metrology and is the Director of the EPSRC Future Metrology Hub. She obtained her PhD in measurement science in 1995, a Professorial Chair in 2003, a DSc for precision engineering in 2007.
Jane is an internationally respected research leader in advanced metrology, that involves two major aspects: mathematical models and algorithms for geometrical products specification and metrology, including geometric shape, tolerancing, and surface texture analysis, filtration and parametric characterisation; and optical interferometry technology for embedded measurement, including wavelength/frequency scanning interferometry and optical chip interferometry.
Jane is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng), a Fellow of the International Academy of Production Research (CIRP), the Institute of Engineering Technology (FIET). She has published more than 400 journal papers; was awarded a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award in 2006, the Sir Harold Hartley Medal in 2014 and the IET 2014 Innovation Award in the manufacturing technology. More recently she received a Damehood in the 2017 Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to manufacturing and engineering.
This talk will discuss the essential scientific foundations for the future manufacturing of high valued products. Manufacturing is going through a 'disruptive revolution', from traditional, through innovation to future breakthrough factories that are fully intelligent and digitalised, allowing autonomous, cloud and distributed manufacturing during 2025-2050. This demands the creation of completely new technologies and methodologies to make design, production and quality control of complex products intelligently and automatically and thereby suitable for future production.
However, current scientific understanding of high value manufacturing is far behind the autonomous target; it is much slower than the development of scientific computing technology which can be ready to support the ‘Internet of Things’ in time. This is a consequence of the lack of science fundaments, knowledge and enabling technologies.
The talk will concentrate on how to create infratechnology for future manufacturing of high valued products and establish scientific fundamentals and revolutionary technology to accelerate a transformation in high value manufacturing. These include fundamentals for imaginative product design and metrology, embedded sensors/instrumentation and breakthroughs in-process quality control.
